DUAL

Congratulations with your purchase of our high quality, corrosion free hot water cylinder. (HWC).

If you are the installer, please follow the installation instructions carefully, AND check the final installation according to the instruc- tions. The Xstream MAINSTREAM range can only be installed in a HORIZONTAL position. Enquire about our UPSTREAM range for vertical installations.

When connecting solar panels to the MAINSTREAM DUAL range, the element should be placed in the upper element position at the rear end of the tank. This will ensure maximum use is made from solar energy.

When connecting solar panels to the MAINSTREAM DUAL range, we recommend the thermostat to be set at 60˚C. This will supply the min- imum of electrically heated hot water, with electric element is posi- tioned in the upper half of the tank.

In selecting the absorption area (panel size), it is important to use 65 – 80l of storage water per square meter of panel, e.g. 200 litre HWC will use a 3m² panel (67 litre / m²).

We supply our tanks with copper-to-copper conex fittings for ease of installation. Please hold the rear nut with a spanner when the con- nections are done to the fittings provided. No soldering is allowed. The supplied fittings must not be removed.

SOLAR OPTION:

Remember that the cylinder MUST be installed at a higher point than the highest point of the solar panel, so that the heated water from the panel can siphon through the HWC. You are advised, when the solar option is considered in areas with freezing conditions in winter, rather to use our Solarstream HWC (indirect system, fitted with heat ex- changer). Should you wish to install the storage tank at a position lower than the absorption panel, a circulation pump of some sort will be required. Please contact our factory for options.

DUAL

Proceed as follows: (Interior Installation)

  • Position the drip tray, sloping towards the outlet in a secured position.

  • Place the Xstream HWC inside the drip tray, ensuring that the fittings are inside the drip tray.

  • If a solar panel is not connected, block the solar in- and outlet to be opened at any future time if a panel is to be connected, and position element in the lower end.

  • Connect the incoming cold line to the inlet (at bottom of HWC). Use a male inlet coupler (MIC).

  • Ensure a suitable (up to 400kPa) pressure reducing valve (PRV) is connected to the incoming line AND that the cold supply is taken from a point AFTER the PRV. This will ensure balanced pressure (Hot and cold water supply at a mixing tap having the same pressure).

  • Install a vacuum breaker at least 300mm above the HWC.

  • Connect the hot water supply line from the outlet (on top of the HWC), also installing a vacuum breaker as per cold inlet.

  • Please ensure copper tube is used on the hot water supply line.

  • Connect copper tube to the temperature and pressure safety valve (T&P) and take it at a slope to the outside. Try to

mi-

nimize sharp bends.

  • Use two spanners when connecting the conex compression (supplied) fittings. HOLD the rear nut whilst tightening the con- necting nut. Do not remove these fittings. Do not solder onto the copper pipe connected to the geyser.

  • The T&P valve (Temperature and Pressure (safety) valve) can be adjusted to the required angle. Loosen the securing nut, ad- just the angle and fasten the nut and the desired angle.

  • Fill the HWC with water. Leave a hot water tap open to get any extra air out of the system.

  • Once filled, close the tap.

  • Proceed by connecting the electrical supply. Open the electrical box and connect the electricity line. Alwa ys ensure the electricity line is dead when working with electricity. Ensure a suitable qualified artisan performs this function.

  • Install a suitable isolator switch within easy reach of the HWC.

  • ALWAYS ensure that the HWC is filled with water BEFORE the electrical supply is commissioned. Failing this the HWC and submersible element might be damaged.

  • Check all fittings for leaks, and ensure all supply lines are properly fastened and secured to fastening points; thereby mi- nimizing strain on the fittings attached to the HWC.

  • Never remove the supplied copper fittings from the HWC.

Proceed as follows: (Exterior Installation)

  • All procedures as per interior installation, however, instead of using the drip tray use the stainless steel straps provided.

  • Us a spirit level and mark the points where the straps are to be positioned – allow 300mm from both ends of the HWC.

  • Use at least 10 x 100mm suitable anchoring bolts for wall installations, or other suitable securing bolts for roof installations. Properly secure the straps (provided). Push the HWC through the loops and proceed with connecting procedures as described.
